JAMES GILCHRIST _tenor_ ANNA TILBROOK _piano_ PURCELL _O Solitude_ SCHUBERT Einsamkeit D620 JONATHAN DOVE _Under alter’ d skies (Leeds Lieder Première)_ BARBER _Hermit Songs_ Gilchrist and Tilbrook, particularly noted as outstanding exponents of Schubert and English song, have enjoyed a fruitful collaboration for well over 20 years, with many award-winning recordings to their name. Tonight’s programme is typically wide-ranging and includes Schubert’s ambitious _Einsamkeit_. Jonathan Dove’s _Under alter’ d skies_, which was commissioned by Wigmore Hall, receives its Leeds Lieder première, while Barber’s witty, stark and virtuosic cycle, his settings of translations of medieval Gaelic or Latin poems attributed to Irish saints and holy persons, rounds off the evening. > _‘James Gilchrist showed once again that he has few equals amongst tenors with a beautifully expressive performance’_ >  > MUSICOHM, LEEDS LIEDER GALA WIGMORE HALL >  > _‘Anna Tilbrook is an outstanding accompanist: discreet when necessary, but also able to make the simplest phrase or chordal progression tell without a touch of exaggeration’_ >  > BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
